SIWATOOL is a service software tool which enables you to calibrate the module quickly and efficiently on site, set or reset parameters, or perform diagnostics in the event of a fault.
Furthermore, complete backup files can be created for the scales, which can be uploaded to a new module with a few mouse clicks, so that the module continues to operate exactly as it did before the backup, without the need for any recalibration. It is even possible to upload configuration files that were created offline, or to read out the error buffer. No special SIMATIC knowledge is required to use SIWATOOL. Depending on the SIWAREX card, it is connected via Ethernet, RS 232 or RS 485 to the PC.
